On Caffeine, the Contest, and Mad Quackery
Hi there blog followers. Sorry for our stretch of silence. We all were hospitalized for the excessive coffee/burrito consumption that we required to survive the last weeks of spring term. Turns out Trehalose, Lactic Acid, and Torula Yeast (ingredients in Taco Bell’s seasoned beef) don’t combine well with massive doses of caffeine. We no longer have stomachs, though we’ve discovered stomachs are not strictly necessary if you put yourself in the hands of the right mad scientists.
So we’re back—and still trying to work out the mechanism that will allow contest entrants to submit and pay online. We are on the cusp of making it happen. And you have till the end of July to submit, so no worries . . . yet. A note about the contest: each entry includes a year’s subscription to the mag, so if you enter twice, that’s a two-year subscription, three times is a three-year subscription, and so on. If you would prefer to make any of the additional subscriptions gifts to family members or friends, just drop us a line to that effect (editors [at] cincinnatireview [dot] com).
